 Im not sure if this is a specific FreeBSD error, or a problem with Perl
(or
 other).
 Doesn't not know what SvPV_nolen is either. Googling does not make me
any
 smarter :-/

Was this a complete portupgrade?  That perl looks quite old.

Did you catch this in ports/UPDATING?

   AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.8
   AUTHOR: [EMAIL PROTECTED]

   lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.7.  You should update everything
   depending on perl.  The easiest way to do that is to use
   perl-after-upgrade script supplied with lang/perl5.8.  Please see
   its manual page for details.

Hi and thanks Kevin!

Im using Perl 5.005_03 (perl -v) on FBSD4.10.
I thought that Perl was part of the base system.
Is it possible to upgrade my installation, to
Perl 5.8.x, via ports?

Yes it was a full portupgrade. Did not saw the UPDATING
notes on Perl. Had some problem with PHP5 and must have
overlooked everything else.

TIA  BR  Pelle

FreeBSD Book for New Users Available in PDF Format

2006-05-20 Thread Annelise Anderson


The book I wrote for users new to FreeBSD and Unix--
FreeBSD: An Open Source Operating System for Your Personal Computer--
is out of print now (although DeamonNews may have a few copies) and
no longer available on Amazon, although they may still be listing
the first edition.

Many people have written to thank me for providing an
introductory book for new users.  This book is based on versions
4.1-4.11 of FreeBSD and doesn't cover 5.x or 6.x at all.  But
I continue to get requests for it.  So it's available in pdf
format on http://andrsn.stanford.edu/FreeBSD/introbook/

It's still copyrighted (I own the copyright) and so is
available for personal use, not reprint.  But feel free to download
and print.  Let me know if it doesn't work.

Annelise

Hi,

FAT32 can't distinguish between upper and lowercase. You need to use an

Hello!

I have this nice renaming script here.
It sanitizes badly named parts of files and folders.

But when I run it on my FAT32, dual boot transition partition 
(hehe), it causes

my computer (Pentium 4, 3,2 GHz) to freeze. I vaguely remember seeing some
message before it freezes saying Locking from myself or something 
like that,

this is not recorded into /var/log/messages.

It is very annoying actually because to rename a bunch of files I 
first have to
copy them to my UFS2 partition, run the script, and then copy them 
back to the

FAT32 partition.

Does this problem sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks!

Anyway here is the script.


FAT32 seems to have some limitations on moving and renaming files.

Several years ago I had wrote a program (which ran under Win98) which received
files by UDP in pieces.  Once fully assembled it would MOVE  the 
files to another director.


That process would bog down.  When I tried the same application 
under WinNT on an NTFS
drive it worked OK.  I don't know if the problem was in Win 98 or if 
it is a weakness of the FAT32
design.  If the problem is in the FAT32 design there could be 
problems that even show up under

FreeBSD.

That's my $0.02


To a man of my poverty, $0.02 is a lot more than what it seems :)

I guess there' s no way around it.

I notice when I copy files, manually one by one, to or from FAT32,
the files end up in uppercase. This is also very annoying,
but something I guess I have to live with.

Take care,
Kyrre

upgrading to apache 2.2

I have a working configuration with apache-1.3.x, php4, mySQL
As I understand apache-1.3.x is a bit old, so I want to change this
config to a working apache-2.2.x + mySQL + php4

Can anybody give me some advice in how to do his? Do I remove all
packages first and do a reinstall afterwards? If yes, what will be the
right sequence?

Or is there another (better) way?
Reading points are welcome too ;-)

Microsoft USB wireless mouse can not work

2006-05-20 Thread panxj
Hi, all
I have a   Microsoft USB wireless mouse, but it cannot work in FreeBSD, 
neither in console nor in KDE. It goes well in Linux and Windows. However, 
after I plug the receiver into the USB interface, the kernel recongizes the 
hardware, and I get this in /var/log/message

May 20 18:19:15 Earth kernel: uhid0: Microsoft Microsoft USB Wireless Mouse, 
rev 2.00/0.17, addr 2, iclass 3/1

I tried sysinstall-configure-Mouse, chose auto for the type and 
enabled the moused, but nothing happens.
What should I do now? Thank you very much!___

What does dmesg(8) say in regard to this?  Can
you run moused(8)?  What hardware is this, anyway?


$ moused(8)

Yup.  The (8) refers to the manual section,
see the manpage for man(1) for that.  (Oh,
and you'd do it like this:

$ man man


$ moused
moused: no port name specified


Yeah.  Running moused needs to have
some arguments.  What's the output
of ls /dev/sysmouse ?


$ dmesg(8)
Badly placed ()'s


ditto above.


$ dmseg
dmseg: Command not found.


Look carefully.  That's dmesg, not
dmseg ...

dmesg should give you a boot message, which
should show us something about your mouse.

Re: 6.1 CD is Hanging on Install

2006-05-20 Thread Kevin Kinsey

Justin wrote:


I'm trying to venture into the world of BSD.  Thus, I have just
recently joined the mailing list and this is my first message.  I have
tried to research my question and found a similar problem, but I was
unable to find any type of solution.

Here's What's Happening:

After I boot my laptop to the installer CD and select what I'd like to
boot (I've tried the default, no acpi, and safe mode with the same
results), the installer seems to lock up the computer after the
following two lines:

 Timecounter TSC frequency 1600070929 Hz quality 800
 Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec

At this point the computer responds to nothing but holding down the
power button, which obviously kills the power.  Just in case it was
trying to work something out (after all, the thinking light was on),
I let my laptop sit for almost four hours with still no change.


Offhand, I'd still suspect ACPI/APM.  The next step after Timecounter
is usually the ACPI Timecounter and then ACPI CPU0.

Other than trying:  a] another CD of 6.1 (maybe bad burn?) or
b] another version of FreeBSD, I wouldn't know what to suggest.


I have used Debian and Fedora on this computer previously with no
problems (and obviously Windows works also).

Since there are really no other options as far as booting goes, I
really don't know what I've done wrong or what I can do.



Well, there might be a few remaining things to try.  See

 http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/laptop/article.html
 http://www.freebsddiary.org/freebsd-6.0-rc1.php

  (and Google, where I found those), for more information about
APM/ACPI problems.

Dan (Freebsddiary) shows himself hitting any other key for command
prompt during stage 2 boot, then issuing:

   unset acpi_load
   boot -v

Seems like the verbose boot might be worth looking at; perhaps
you could get a better idea just exactly what is up with the boot
process.


Just is case it helps, here is some information about my system:
Compaq Presario M2105US
 AMD Mobile Sempron processor
 1GB RAM4
 ATI Express 200M graphics card w/ shared memory

Also, I've tried to use the 2CD set and Boot Only CD for the i386.



Hmm, then maybe the try a different CD won't work.  Sorry
I've got no more thoughts ATM.  Good luck!

Upgrading and Disk Space.

You must have upgraded and didn't build the compatibility libs or deleted

sshd delay

2006-05-20 Thread Andrew Pantyukhin

I have a problem. When I run sshd -ddd I get this:
(I get the same delay without -ddd, of course)

...
debug3: mm_pty_allocate: waiting for MONITOR_ANS_PTY
debug3: mm_request_receive_expect entering: type 26
debug3: mm_request_receive entering
=== 60-90 seconds of delay
debug3: mm_request_send entering: type 26

I started getting the delay a few days ago, on a number of
hosts running 6.0-RELEASE/i386. I tried setting UseDNS
off - to no effect. The sshd process is in state sbwait during
the delay. Any ideas?

That would be my first reaction, too.  But I suspect there are a lot
of different possible requirements for this kind of storage, and if
you really want to archive everything, keeping it out of your normal
mailboxes would be more efficient and less prone to losing archives
you wanted to keep.  

Most MTAs can be configured to save all mail on the way through, and
I've known people to use procmail to do similar things.  Depends on
why you want the archive.

RE: 6.1 CD is Hanging on Install

Trouble shooting 101.

1. If you burned the install cd from the iso file, did you 
first check that what you downloaded is correct by running 
md5 and comparing the hash number against the checksum value?

2. Check the motherboard bio settings. 
Turn off all power management options.
If there is an option to select the operation system, 
select anything other than windows. 
Check that irq number assignments are set to auto.
Check that hard drive master/slave is set to auto.

3. If nothing works to fix problem them post your question to 
the FreeBSD mobile list. The mobile list is just for laptop 
questions so you should get better help there.

Subject: 6.1 CD is Hanging on Install


Hello,

I'm trying to venture into the world of BSD.  Thus, I have just
recently joined the mailing list and this is my first message.  I have
tried to research my question and found a similar problem, but I was
unable to find any type of solution.

Here's What's Happening:

After I boot my laptop to the installer CD and select what I'd like to
boot (I've tried the default, no acpi, and safe mode with the same
results), the installer seems to lock up the computer after the
following two lines:

  Timecounter TSC frequency 1600070929 Hz quality 800
  Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec

 At this point the computer responds to nothing but holding down the
power button, which obviously kills the power.  Just in case it was
trying to work something out (after all, the thinking light was on),
I let my laptop sit for almost four hours with still no change.

I have used Debian and Fedora on this computer previously with no
problems (and obviously Windows works also).

Since there are really no other options as far as booting goes, I
really don't know what I've done wrong or what I can do.

Just is case it helps, here is some information about my system:
Compaq Presario M2105US
  AMD Mobile Sempron processor
  1GB RAM
  ATI Express 200M graphics card w/ shared memory

Also, I've tried to use the 2CD set and Boot Only CD for the i386.

Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a program called crypt which comes with FreeBSD which provides 
basic single-rotor encryption, which is fine for casual use but can be 
decrypted via bigram/trigram analysis easily by someone who knows what 
they are doing.  If you want strong encryption, look towards GnuPG from 
security/gnupg, or possibly towards OpenPGP or even the commercial variant.

 But while it's playing, the time doesn't change, the

 anyone has any suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. 

I'd guess there's more than one thing going on, so try to
eliminate some variables.  In particular, use a command-line

If the other fine suggestions given by the others on this list do
not solve the problem, a couple other suggestions come to mind.

Redownloading and reburning the CD would be the first suggestion.
If the CD does not boot correctly, does diskettes (if you computer
still as one of course)?

The next suggestion is to get a list of components from the install
of the other OSes that work. That list and the verbose boot may point
out a device that the OS is having giving you difficulty.

Have you tried manually starting the slow processes under ktrace and

ktrace output can be a little cryptic, but you don't have to understand
all of it, and you can always post the relevent parts to the list and
ask for help.  Start the process with ktrace enabled, if it seems to
hang for a while, stop the ktrace and the end part should give some
indication of what the holdup is.  If the process just takes a long time,
it'll require some more work to diagnose what's takin so long.

cp /usr/local/share/my-small.cnf /var/db/mysql/my.cnf. Have a look at

There's some other configs in /usr/local/share so if you need something

Associating the ypdomain with the FQDN from the DNS is convenient, and a 
convention that many follow, but it is not required, by any means.  The 
O'Reilly Managing NIS and NFS book is a fine reference on this sort of 
thing, BTW, and is probably available online in PDF form if you look.


Nevertheless, YP/NIS predates many of the more convoluted network 
designs that people set up nowadays, and was intended for machines which 
have a single identity even if they have multiple NICs-- Sun used to 
assign the same MAC address to all NICs on one machine, to ensure that 
people respected collision domains.  It is not normally desirable to set 
up a YP/NIS master server on a machine which is multihomed in the sense 
of doing NAT or needing a firewall to separate internal from external, 
and obvious a firewall machine running zero or the minimal necessary 
services is a lot more secure

kmail on FreeBSD 6.1

2006-05-20 Thread none none
hi
i am new in FreeBSD and i have encounterted a problem
with kmail. I had set it up and it was working fine
until i tried to portupgrade -a. Some pkgs failed
during portupgrade and since then i am unable to run
kmail. the message i receive when i type kmail on the
xterminal is:

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object
libgpg-error.so.1 not found, required by kmail

I shearced for libgpg-error.so.1 and found it in
several directories like /root/.kde/share/apps/kmail
and  /root/libgpg-error/lib.
I copied it in /libexec just in case but ofcourse
nothing changed. Everything else seems all right for
now just kmail refuses to initiate. Is anything that i
can do?
thanks in advance

That will recompile anything that depends on libgpg-error (and libgpg-error as

RE: installing MySQL with FreeBSD pkg_add

2006-05-20 Thread fbsd
The pkg_add -r msql41-server auto installs mysql41-client
as a dependaent so when you ran pkg_add -r mysql41-client
it found it was all ready there just like it should.
This is not an error.

Next you have to do rehash command or reboot box so system
can find those new modules.

Then run
mysql_install_db --user=mysql
from the command line to tell mysql to create its internel control
db.

Then mysql -u root   should work.

Re: Setting up NIS questions?

 You have given me an idea.  I can change rc.conf to set hostname
 to the name I've given 192.168.0.10, put that on bge0, put 
 the IP address associated with the FQDN on bge1, and reboot.
 This might permit NIS to come up.  Though this seems like a hack,
 because when someone connects to the seem via the FQDN, 
 /bin/hostname will give the wrong answer.
 
 Associating the ypdomain with the FQDN from the DNS is convenient, and a 
 convention that many follow, but it is not required, by any means.  The 
 O'Reilly Managing NIS and NFS book is a fine reference on this sort of 
 thing, BTW, and is probably available online in PDF form if you look.

Thanks for the pointer.  I'll go looking for this book.

 Nevertheless, YP/NIS predates many of the more convoluted network 
 designs that people set up nowadays, and was intended for machines which 
 have a single identity even if they have multiple NICs-- Sun used to 
 assign the same MAC address to all NICs on one machine, to ensure that 
 people respected collision domains.

I don't see how this is convoluted.  In fact, I would be inclined
to claim that it is the defacto method for setting up an internal
computational cluster

 s  --- node1
internet -F- FQDN|master --- w  --- node2
 t  --- node3

where swt = switch.

 It is not normally desirable to set up a YP/NIS master server on
 a machine which is multihomed in the sense of doing NAT or needing
 a firewall to separate internal from external, and obvious a
 firewall machine running zero or the minimal necessary services is
 a lot more secure

Note that -F- actually has at least one firewall.  Only people in
the apl.washington.edu domain can get to FQDN.  I was hoping to 
use NIS to simplify the propagation of info (eg., passwd, hosts,
etc.) from master to the nodes.  Propagating the info by hand
isn't too bad because I only have five nodes represently.  However,
I hope to grow an additional 11 nodes.

Re: sshd delay

2006-05-20 Thread Andrew
Hello,

This is perhaps a long shot, but anyway... 

I assume the reason you tried turning off DNS look-ups is that remote
host cannot resolve the local hostname, or it can, but takes a
relatively long time to do so. You might check and see if syslog has DNS
look-ups enabled. It's been a while, but I think we had a similar
problem and don't ask me why, but turning off DNS look-ups for syslog
solved the problem. I can't believe that sshd would block waiting for
syslog, but I suppose it could be true...

The server isn't running.  Start it, and this message
will go away.

If the port/package is correctly installed, then

$ /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server.sh start

as root should do the trick.

To have mysql-server start automagically, add:

mysql_enable=YES

to the file /etc/rc.conf

BTW, shouldn't there be a space between the -u
and the root ?  Probably just a c-n-p error.

controlling ports: connection refused

2006-05-20 Thread Peter Michaux

Hi,

I'm having fun getting things working with FreeBSD. Hopefully I won't
have too many questions for you guys but another speedbump. This looks
like a SVN question but I think it is really a FreeBSD question.

I have Mac OS X 10.3.9 on one computer and FreeBSD 6.1 on another.
They are both connected to my router. If I start a webserver (Webrick
for a Rails web applications) on the FreeBSD machine, then I can view
the website
on my Mac by navigating to http://192.168.0.103:3000/;. So I know the
two machines can talk to each other.

On the FreeBSD machine I created an svn repository, did an initial svn
import and can checkout the repostitory two ways. This is all on the
FreeBSD machine.

# cd /home/peter/
# svn checkout file:///home/peter/projectA
Checked out revision 1

# cd /home/peter/
# svnserve -d -r /home/peter/proj
# svn checkout svn://localhost/projectB
checkout out revision 1

So I know svn is working.

Now I would like to do a checkout on the Mac

$ svn checkout svn://192.168.0.103/projectB
subversion/libsvn_ra_svn/client.c:141: (apr_err=61)
svn: Can't connect to host '192.168.0.103': Connection refused
$ svn checkout svn://192.168.0.103:3690/projectB
subversion/libsvn_ra_svn/client.c:141: (apr_err=61)
svn: Can't connect to host '192.168.0.103': Connection refused

Any ideas what I should do?

On my mac I tried

$ telnet 192.168.0.103 3000
Trying 192.168.0.103...
Connected to 192.168.0.103.

but when I try port 3690 (the default port for svn)

$ telnet 192.168.0.103 3690
Trying 192.168.0.103...
telnet: connect to address 192.168.0.103: Connection refused

You should probably start the Subversion server on the FreeBSD machine.
What does sockstat -4 tell you?  I'm guessing you never started the
subversion server.

Profile Libraries

This is probably a dumb question, but what are 'profile libraries'?
There is the option to use either -NO_PROFILE while building a port, or
putting it in the make.conf file as NO_PROFILE= true, so I assume it
does something. If these libraries are not required, why are they built
by default anyway?

Managing a [local] package repository....

2006-05-20 Thread Eric Schuele

Hello,

I'm wondering how others manage a local store of packages... or even if 
anyone does this sort of thing.  Let me explain...


Some short time back I decided to start stockpiling packages of all the 
ports I have installed on my machine.  I was/am doing this because I 
intend on doing a fresh install to 6.1-RELEASE when I have the time. 
But, although I do prefer to compile the ports (as opposed to 
downloading the packages) I do not wish to recompile them all *again*, 
because it is a significant amount of time.  I intend to just transfer 
them to the new installation.  So I wrote a small script (appended 
below, comments welcome) to create packages of everything on my system. 
 I did that one time, and have since done make install package clean 
to install new packages, and done portupgrade -aprR to upgrade those 
presently installed.


While this does seem to work well for me, it has left one problem I did 
not foresee.  As ports get upgraded, their new package is built and 
placed in my package dir, but the *old* port's package is not removed. 
So I now have quite a few packages in my package directory that are not 
the most recent, and hence are just taking up space.


Example (/usr/ports/packages/All):

ImageMagick-6.2.5.5_4.tbz
ORBit-0.5.17_3.tbz
ORBit2-2.14.0.tbz ---
ORBit2-2.14.0_1.tbz   ---
OpenSP-1.5_7.tbz
aspell-0.60.4_3.tbz
at-spi-1.7.7.tbz---
at-spi-1.7.7_1.tbz  ---
aterm-1.0.0_1.tbz
atk-1.11.4.tbz  ---

autoconf-2.13.000227_5.tbz
autoconf-2.59_2.tbz

avahi-0.6.10_1.tbz---
avahi-0.6.10_3.tbz---
avahi-0.6.9_5.tbz ---
-

So my question is:
Is there a way to automatically remove the old packages as existing 
packages get upgraded?  Or is there some more appropriate means for 
generating packages (and keeping them up to date) that I could transfer 
to a fresh install (or even another machine for that matter)?


My mk_pkgs.sh.  Comments are appreciated.

#!/bin/sh

# This will create a binary package for all ports installed on a machine.

for dname in *
  do

if [ $dname != pkgdb.db ]
then

them to the new installation.  So I wrote a small script (appended
below, comments welcome) to create packages of everything on my system.
  I did that one time, and have since done make install package clean
to install new packages, and done portupgrade -aprR to upgrade those
presently installed.

While this does seem to work well for me, it has left one problem I did
not foresee.  As ports get upgraded, their new package is built and
placed in my package dir, but the *old* port's package is not removed.
So I now have quite a few packages in my package directory that are not
the most recent, and hence are just taking up space.

Example (/usr/ports/packages/All):

ImageMagick-6.2.5.5_4.tbz
ORBit-0.5.17_3.tbz
ORBit2-2.14.0.tbz ---
ORBit2-2.14.0_1.tbz   ---
OpenSP-1.5_7.tbz
aspell-0.60.4_3.tbz
at-spi-1.7.7.tbz---
at-spi-1.7.7_1.tbz  ---
aterm-1.0.0_1.tbz
atk-1.11.4.tbz  ---
atk-1.11.4_1.tbz---
autoconf-2.13.000227_5.tbz
autoconf-2.59_2.tbz
automake-1.4.6_2.tbz
automake-1.9.6.tbz
avahi-0.6.10.tbz  ---
avahi-0.6.10_1.tbz---
avahi-0.6.10_3.tbz---
avahi-0.6.9_5.tbz ---
-

So my question is:
Is there a way to automatically remove the old packages as existing
packages get upgraded?  Or is there some more appropriate means for
generating packages (and keeping them up to date) that I could transfer
to a fresh install (or even another machine for that matter)?

My mk_pkgs.sh.  Comments are appreciated.
=
#!/bin/sh

# This will create a binary package for all ports installed on a machine.
# It will place the packages in /usr/ports/packages/All

db_pkg_dir=/var/db/pkg

pkg_dir=/usr/ports/packages/All
mkdir -p $pkg_dir

cd $db_pkg_dir
for dname in *
   do

 if [ $dname != pkgdb.db ]
 then

   pkg_create -v -b $dname $pkg_dir/$dname.tbz

 fi

   done
===


Thanks for your help.


Look at man portsclean.

Beech



Yes... that's doing the trick.  I've used it for cleaning out 
unreferenced distfiles did not know it cleaned up packages as well. 
 Thanks.

Maple 8 on FreeBSD with Diablo

Maple keeps getting me trouble...
Has anyone installed Maple 8 with the new diablo? What the handbook

Linux/Unix.

NetBSD people claim to have it rolling under binary emulation, but
their page lacks details too.

Can anyone help?

cleaning off unix/linux????

2006-05-20 Thread Gary Kline
Gang,

A 40G drive that I thought was bad (when trying to install W2K
on the drive) may be entirely good.  I am trying to avoid having
to buy a DOS/Win platform.  I've had both W2K and FBSD or Ubuntu
on this one machine.  For various reasons I need one DOS machine.
(Already have 7 or 8 *Nix servers.)   The Windows 2000 
Professional CD find some other non-Windows partition and 
press D and L as I will, the installation CD keeps
complaining.  Eventually I have to hit F3 to quit.  So, nutshell,
is there any way I can completely remove any trace of *Nix?
-I remember having a DOS floppy and typing an undocumented
MBR \ command that wiped the drive clean of this boot record,
but this was [mumble] years ago.

thanks for any tips, y'all,

This is probably a dumb question, but what are 'profile libraries'?
There is the option to use either -NO_PROFILE while building a port, or
putting it in the make.conf file as NO_PROFILE= true, so I assume it
does something. If these libraries are not required, why are they built
by default anyway?


See man gprof for details.  Basicly, the libraries contain code which 
is instrumented so that you can figure out things like where the program 
is spending CPU time and what the call graph looks like.  These are used 
by developers for performance tuning only, and are not needed for 
production systems which are not running test/debug code...

Probably overkill, but you could install portmanager from the ports
system if you do not already have it installed. The run:

portmanager x11/kde3 -l -f

to add/update/repair a single port with logging and forcing all of it's
dependencies to be rebuilt. A log file will be created in /var/run named
portmanager.log that you can inspect after the program finishes. I would
highly recommend that you update yours ports prior to running this
program.

Boot to a recent FreeBSD Install CD (with the Rescue tools on disk 1) 
or a not-so-recent FreeBSD Rescue CD, and go to rescue mode.


After verifying the device name of the drive you're trying to clean 
(using dmesg and/or fdisk), do this (I'm assuming a single drive, ad0):


dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 bs=32k count=1

That will overwrite the first 32k of the drive with zeroes.  That 
should wipe out the MBR and the partition table.  Since you want the 
drive to be clean anyway, it doesn't hurt to make the bs or count 
values higher.  To zero out the entire drive, you could do this:


dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ad0 bs=1m

(With no count option it will write to the end of the device.)

Doing any of this on a drive with data you care about is of course 
contraindicated.

setting host name during install?

2006-05-20 Thread Peter Michaux

Hi,

During install, I don't quite understand the host parameter that I
supplied for my networking configuration.

I used DHPC and most of the parameters were filled in for me

Host:
Domain: gv.shawcable.net
IPv4 Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Name server: 192.168.0.1
IPv4 Address: 192.168.0.103
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Extra options to ifconfig (usually empty):

When I pressed tab in the Host box it automatically filled in with
.gv.shawcable.net which make sense since I have a cable modem from
Shaw in Greater Victoria. But it seems like something should have gone
before the first dot. Is there an opportunity here to give my computer
a cool name like beastie so I can type things like
http://beastie:3000; instead of http://192.168.0.103:3000; ? Or is
this host name supposed to be some server at my ISP?

I changed the hostname using the following steps but I don't know what
I really gained.

1. vi /etc/rc.conf
2. change
hostname=.gv.shawcable.net
  to
hostname=beastie
3. restart computer so change becomes reality.
4. now the command prompt says [EMAIL PROTECTED]

When I tried http://beastie:3000; I ended up at the Beastie Boys
website. Not the worst suprise but not what I was hoping for.

Re: setting host name during install?

2006-05-20 Thread SM X

For changing hostname (and/or IP), I found that the best way is to use
sysinstall and change it from there (Configure -- Networking --
Interfaces -- your NIC), since that one will change not only
rc.conf file, but also the hosts file (so that your browser can
actually resolve name beastie in the http request), and potentially
resolv.conf (where your name server entries (not in your case, since
you are on DHCP, therefore you get the DNS server entries
automatically) are stored.

Obviously, the remedy in your case is to manually edit the hosts file
and assign the appropriate values there.

Or you can always just use http://localhost:3000 and that should work.
Hope this helps,
smx

P.S. I would not consider myself an expert, so , if I made any
mistakes above, hopefully others will alert us all about those. What I
can tell you is that I did try the procedure above several times and
it was working for me.

Or you can always just use http://localhost:3000 and that should work.
Hope this helps,

P.S. I would not consider myself an expert, so , if I made any
mistakes above, hopefully others will alert us all about those. What I
can tell you is that I did try the procedure above several times and
it was working for me.

 Hi,

 During install, I don't quite understand the host parameter that I
 supplied for my networking configuration.

 I used DHPC and most of the parameters were filled in for me

 Host:
 Domain: gv.shawcable.net
 IPv4 Gateway: 192.168.0.1
 Name server: 192.168.0.1
 IPv4 Address: 192.168.0.103
 Netmask: 255.255.255.0
 Extra options to ifconfig (usually empty):

 When I pressed tab in the Host box it automatically filled in with
 .gv.shawcable.net which make sense since I have a cable modem from
 Shaw in Greater Victoria. But it seems like something should have gone
 before the first dot. Is there an opportunity here to give my computer
 a cool name like beastie so I can type things like
 http://beastie:3000; instead of http://192.168.0.103:3000; ? Or is
 this host name supposed to be some server at my ISP?

 I changed the hostname using the following steps but I don't know what
 I really gained.

 1. vi /etc/rc.conf
 2. change
  hostname=.gv.shawcable.net
to
  hostname=beastie
 3. restart computer so change becomes reality.
 4. now the command prompt says [EMAIL PROTECTED]

 When I tried http://beastie:3000; I ended up at the Beastie Boys
 website. Not the worst suprise but not what I was hoping for.

 Thanks,
 Peter

Re: setting host name during install?

2006-05-20 Thread SM X

Why are you using port 3000? Are you sure that there is a process
running on your machine that is listening on that port?
In other words, when you mentioned http://192.168.0.103:3000;, was
that something that was (and hopefully still is) working on your
machine or you just used that URL to let us know what you are
attempting to do?

Hi,

Thanks for the info. I reversed what I had done and then used
sysinstall. Going through sysinstall let me enter
beastie.gv.shawcable.net as my host name. However when I try the
following two url's i get and unknown host.

http://beastie:3000/
http://beastie.gv.shawcable.net:3000/

Any other ideas?

Thanks,
Peter

 For changing hostname (and/or IP), I found that the best way is to use
 sysinstall and change it from there (Configure -- Networking --
 Interfaces -- your NIC), since that one will change not only
 rc.conf file, but also the hosts file (so that your browser can
 actually resolve name beastie in the http request), and potentially
 resolv.conf (where your name server entries (not in your case, since
 you are on DHCP, therefore you get the DNS server entries
 automatically) are stored.

building a cluster

2006-05-20 Thread Carlos Silva

Hi,

I want to build a cluster with 2-3 nodes to convert my video files to 
DVD pretty faster (it takes an ETA of 12 hours right now), but I'm not 
familiarized with this systems, so if anyone can give me a little help 
on creating this cluster it's very appreciated!

I have two questions too:
- Is there possible to execute a program manufactured to a single pc and 
this use all the processors?

- How hard can be this configuration of the cluster and monitoring systems?

Best Regards,

Carlos Silva, CSilva
